The announcement that the Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony would replace the injured Kevin Love on the Eastern Conference All-Star team came during the Heat’s 117-109 victory over the Rockets Wednesday and following the game Whiteside took the news in stride. “Congratulations to Melo,” he said. Whiteside, who led the Heat with 23 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks, then lamented the fact that not one center is on the East team. “I would have loved for a center to represent the East but that’s not the way the fans want to see it,” said the 7-footer. “I have really no control over that, I’m trying to make the playoffs.”
Storyline: All-Star Selections
This improbable, illogical and nearly impossible Miami Heat win streak — which reached an even 10 games on Saturday night with a 125-102 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers — has been executed mostly due to gaudy numbers by the backcourt. But on this night, it was Whiteside who dominated with 30 points, 20 rebounds and three blocks, thrilling the crowd at AmericanAirlines Arena. “I wanted to put some respect on my name,” Whiteside said.
